Xavier Casalta Makes Word Art from Dots

French illustrator Xavier Casalta makes beautiful typography using simply a black Isograph pen. The hand lettering illustrations are so precise and artistic, it's hard to believe they're hand-drawn and not from a computer. The artist is only 21, and yet he stipples like a professional creating an array of letter art with clusters of tiny dots. Thousands of dots are required to create the frames, forms, shadows and gradients.

His recent composition, 'The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog,' truly shows off his skills as he interprets the phrase, which has every single letter in the alphabet in ten different designs.

He is selling limited addition prints of his work and you can support this artist, whose skilfully drawn letters are comparable to the works of the scribes and monks of the middle ages.
